THOSE who relish a ‘project’ will be taken with Lawn House, Drimoleague which, with some tender, loving care has the potential to be something really special.
This four-bed period house in a discreet location at the western end of the village, comes on the market for €350,000.
Covering 3,500 sq foot with an 800 sq foot attic, it sits on a site of around 5.5 acres. That comprises grounds, paddock and attractive woodlands. There’s also a garage, stables and workshops and river frontage along the entire western boundary, offering the new owner enormous business or leisure potential.
Admittedly, the house and grounds are in need of attention and restoration but that’s surely half the property’s appeal. There are many period features still intact, offering a great starting point to decorate, either in keeping with the era or opting for a more contemporary vibe. Surrounded by such natural beauty and with the added possibilities offered by the outhouses, this has great potential as a luxury rental.
